The Brooklyn Nets announced Tuesday that four of their players have tested positive for coronavirus.
It's been six days since the NBA suspended its season after Jazz center Rudy Gobert tested positive for coronavirus. During that time, Gobert's teammate Donovan Mitchell and Pistons center Christian Wood have tested positive as well.
The Nets did not disclose the names of the four players, though they revealed one player is experiencing symptoms while the other three are currently asymptomatic.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, Kevin Durant was one of the players who tested positive for COVID-19. Charania also reported Durant is one of the three players who was not experiencing any symptoms.

In a statement, the organization said it is notifying anyone who has had recent contact with the players and that all four are isolated and under the care of team physicians.
Last Thursday, NBA commissioner Adam Silver confirmed the NBA would remain on hiatus for at least 30 days.
